Description

There has been so much distraction with claims that Einstein is wrong and such like; that we have been diverted from paying attention to Einstein's Unified Field Theory which he was working on; and there has not been much attention drawn to this. The ideas for Einstein's relativity theories comes from an 18th Century priest called Father Boscovich. Attention to Boscovich's theory has been diverted by the massive publicity directed at Einstein.

In the 18th Century Boscovich's theory was accepted as the natural extension to Newton's theory and was considered the first unified theory of physics since the Copernican revolution. Pre-Copernicus the unified theory of physics was Aristotle's theory, and the Copernican Revolution's replacement to Aristotelian unified physics was Boscovich's theory. Boscovich's theory is the Unified Field Theory and was considered proven up to World War II then after WWII it dropped out being mentioned.
